Last week Barnett unveiled the surreal, Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore-directed video for her latest Things Take Time, Take Time track "Before You Gotta Go", and last night (20 September) she took to Twitter to highlight a 2019 video from fellow Australian band Quivers after spotting similarities between the two.

After thanking her team for "Before You Gotta Go", Barnett wrote, "I thought I had come up with a beautiful, original idea for a video, but it seems like I was wrong! I’d like to introduce you to Melbourne band Quivers and director, Nina Renee, who had the same idea way before me."

Barnett added in another tweet, "Any similarities are completely coincidental and if I had seen this clip when I was making mine I would have completely changed my concept or the way we explored it."

As well as sharing the "Before You Gotta Go" video last week, Barnett launched an interactive site that allows fans to play around with the stems from her Things Take Time, Take Time tracks released so far.

Things Take Time, Take Time will follow 2018's Tell Me How You Really Feel album, and was written over the space of two years. Barnett recorded the album in late 2020 and early 2021 in Sydney, Northern New South Wales and Melbourne with producer/drummer Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint, Cate le Bon, Kurt Vile).

Courtney Barnett's Things Take Time, Take Time album will be released 12 November via Marathon Artists, and is available to pre-order now.
